The Cloud 9S™ vibration control platform (model code 9S2) was designed specifically for the popular VPI Prime Scout turntable. The shape of the platform base follows the contour of the Scout/Scoutmaster plinth. It also features a separate plate for the motor to isolate motor noise from the plinth. The placement of the dimples allows many combinations of ball positions to accommodate weights of the Prime Scout.
In all three models of the Cloud 9 series, the balls support the bottom side of the plinth for a lower profile. The feet will go through the four corner holes and be lifted off the shelf, further isolating the plinth from shelf vibration. For high performance and safety, the base has the same double thickness as the Cloud 11™, which prevents the balls from rolling off the dimples.
